The center has been inaugurated in 2012 by Terre des Enfants and Orange Solidarité Madagascar. In 2009, Orange has already joined Terre des Enfants. A wave of solidarity among employees of the Orange Sales and Distribution Division in several regions in France has enabled the « Trousses de l’Espoir » (litterally « Kits of Hope ») operation to support Malagasy schoolchildren. The operation consisted of providing underprivileged children with school kits with indoor supplies, and toilet kits containing soap, toothpaste and other hygiene-related materials to improve their daily life for students and children.
